The Everyday Holistic

Balance the Mind, Body, and Spirit

Welcome to December


It’s here, the happiest month of the year. December, a month where family and friends get together and share happy moments, socialize, exchange gifts, and ‘be merry.’

While this may be true for some, it definitely is not true for all. There may be a bump in the road like: your friends have this type of family. So while they do the family gatherings, the friend gatherings are not their thing. Then your family either doesn’t exist (due to location, never existed, or has passed) or has a different idea of ‘family.’

It can be hard on those of us that long for those picture perfect happy holidays. And even though we try and try to make things special for others, it will put you in a bad place when your hard work is not even slightly appreciated. Add to it our own demons of work stress, money stress, winter blues, loneliness, missing loved ones, etc. etc., it can make for a really hard Christmas.

This is a number one time to find your own control. Take charge of your own life. Do what makes you and those immediately close to you happy. Pull out an aromatherapy diffuser. Add some holiday type oils like cinnamon, pine, sweet orange, frankincense, and/or peppermint. Take a few deep breaths of that holiday aroma, eat a candy cane (or at least it’s a good excuse for one, I love the little ones), turn on the twinkle lights of the Christmas tree, a make a list of your holiday favorites, your holiday traditions. Start working through your list of things to make your holiday happy. If others benefit from your wants, then yeah. If not, oh well. Some of my list includes: lots of holiday decorations, a bowl of the small candy canes, finding a gift for my wonderful husband, watching the local parade on tv (not out in the cold) with a cup of cocoa with marshmallows and whipped cream. I’m going to make a list of Christmas foods I love to make and enjoy, and I will gather donations for a local event. I will make my lovely products and share them with those I choose.

But most importantly, I will not let the greed nor the selfishness of others send my sad and lonely feelings to the surface. I am going to take control of my December, my holiday season, and my happiness today.

Welcome to December, the last month of 2014 to take charge and make good things happen.

Holistic Health, what does it mean? How hard is it to do? Does it cost a lot of money? To me, it means taking responsibility for your life and working towards balance. It can be hard, as hard as you make it. Everything costs money, how much is up to you. Sometimes the only cost is time. My dream is to teach how to balance life by encompassing varied areas of holistic health and bring the magic of alternative therapies to others.

  2. I do accept as true with all the ideas you have introduced in your post.
    They’re really convincing and will certainly work.
    Still, the posts are too short for beginners.
    May just you please extend them a little from next time?
    Thanks for the post.
